  • Edward Campbell

    Hand-made cello, 1977, by Edward Campbell of Chimney’s Violin Shop in PA.  It had one owner, Richard Maag, and the cello sat after he passed.  Some restorative work has been performed at Horvat Fine Violins here, with care taken to keep its Chimney’s Bridge as a tribute to the maker.  It has geared Boxwood pegs, a Horvat tailpiece, and it is going to find its voice again.  Mr. Campbell was a master luthier and winner of many VSA awards.
